'24: Legacy' Star Corey Hawkins Opens Up About Rebooting Franchise With A Black Hero!

Fox is bringing 24 back without Kiefer Sutherland as the franchise star Jack Bauer, instead, 24: Legacy revolves around Corey Hawkins as Eric Carter – a young veteran of the War in Afghanistan who finds himself the target of a terrorist group.

Wile speaking at the 24: Legacy panel during the FOX portion of the 2017 Winter TCA Press Tour held at Langham Hotel on Wednesday (January 11) in Pasadena, the 28-year-old actor opened up about the cultural significance of his casting.

“The script happened to be amazing when I read it,” Corey added (Variety). “It lifted off the page, and my mind just started going with where you can take it and what it means in television to be a hero and look like I look. It’s not just about his skin color, it’s about his culture. It’s about where he grew up. It’s about what does it mean, what are the alliances growing in Washington, D.C. southeast, where I happen to personally have grown up.”

Corey was joined at the panel by his co-stars Miranda Otto, Ashley Thomas, Anna Diop, Jimmy Smits, and co-creators Evan Katz and Manny Coto – Watch the new trailer below!

VIDEO: Queen Latifah Falls Victim to Carjacking in Atlanta

Queen Latifah was the victim of a carjacking in Atlanta, but thankfully she and no one else was injured during the robbery.

The 46-year-old Star actress was not present at the time of the theft. One of her friends was filling up the car at a South Fulton County gas station when thieves drove up in a white BMW and hopped into Latifah‘s car and drove away.

Latifah‘s Mercedes was later recovered at a local apartment complex and the thieves left lemonade and fruit punch bottles behind in the vehicle, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

We’re glad everyone is okay after the scary incident!
